The tournament features four days of preliminaries, where the 16 participants will play each other once at rapid chess with a time control of 15 minutes plus 10-second increments, before the top 8 go forward to the knockout stages.

The knockout features 4-game matches, one each for the quarterfinals and semifinals, and two matches for the final. If still tied, there are two 5+3 blitz games followed, if needed, by an Armageddon game, where White has 5 minutes to Black’s 4, but Black only needs a draw.
